April - Tricia Cribbs
A little about Tricia - I was born in Duncan, Oklahoma but only lived there about a year. I grew up in Texas and have been here ever since. As far back as I can remember I busied myself creating beautiful things - well, at least what "I" thought was beautiful!
With a pointed tree branch, I marked off rooms in the dirt to make the house I played in as a little girl. Using mama's kitchen broom, my dirt floors took on the look of decorated tile with accents of swishes and swirls. Smooth rocks and pretty weeds became lovely home decor sitting on top of salvaged wooden Coca-Cola crates. The water hose, an old coffee can, spoons borrowed from mama’s kitchen, and lids for pie pans, were all I needed to make some pretty special mud pies. Set out in the sun to bake, with carefully added sunflower petals, they were spectacular creations!
